We took the 3 days tour with all tickets and transporte included. Our tour coordinator, Elisabeth, was super good! Always taking care of us all the days of our trip.... read more This was definetely a plus! We loved the tour to the Sacred Valley and the day in Machu Picchu. The tours were given also in english which was good for my belgian boyfriend. All touristic guides very well prepared and enthousiastic for giving us the best experience. Definetely recommendable!!!
From the start, Beto was fast and great at communicating with us while my friends and I were planning our trip. He answered our many questions about the different tours... read more and even remembered details about our trip since one of my friends took on the communicator role with him after I initially reached out. Beto and Inkatime customized our tour so that we saw the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Rainbow Mountain in 3 days. Our whole time in Cusco we were taken care of with organized taxi rides from our drop off points to our accommodations. Elizabeth was great at organizing these details and communicating with us the details of our tour a day in advance. She even rode in the taxi with us to one our accommodations in Cusco when we were concerned about its location. Inkatime, Beto, and Elizabeth really took care of my friends and I during our trip to Peru. 🇵🇪 We would highly recommend booking your tours with them and have already recommended them to our friends. When we go back to Peru, we’ll definitely be using this tour agency again.
We did the full day of mountain biking with Jose. This was amazing and challenging at the same time. Mara’s salt mines and Moray were spectacular. Make sure you have... read more the stamina as you bike in around 3600m e
Inka Time was so organized & helpful from the minute we booked the day tour to Machu Picchu. We received a precise agenda of how the day would go.... read more We also received very helpful advice on what to expect when we traveled to Cusco since we were coming from a much lower altitude and unfamiliar with the country. The day before our tour, a representative visited with us to ensure we understood how to travel and when to get to Machu Picchu. They had a transfer associate meet us at one point, again to make sure we did not get lost & stayed on schedule. At Machu Picchu, Elvis was an amazing guide! He allowed us to take all the time we wanted to view each area & take as many pictures as we wanted. He had a great sense of humor & kept the tour incredibly interesting with his knowledge of Inca history and of Machu Picchu. We couldn't have asked for more from this tour. I picked Inca Time because their prices were so reasonable compared to other companies. I was worried we wouldn't get the best experience since we were paying less, but this is one of the best experiences of all our travels! We HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone visiting Peru!
We are very happy we hiked Rainbow Mountain & Red Valley with Inka Time (August 2021)! Our tour guides were professional, informative, helpful and caring. The food was very good!... read more We loved every minute of our day! Would definitely recommend them to a friend! T
The red valley is really worth seeing. I loved this experience. The guides are very nice and it was one of the rare agencies to offer this service.
1.- I am just one person, can I join some group tour?
Yes, you can, we have departures every day, feel free to decide when to go.
2.- We don’t like to go in a big group, can we arrange a private tour?
Yes you can, our group tours go with 10 or 15 people, but if you want, you can also arrange a private tour, we have different rates for it depending on how many people you are.
3.- I will travel with my family, we have two 65 YO people, do you think, can they make it?
We had people on this tour from 70 and 75 YO, the tour is not hard, but you have some small hikes into the Inca Sites where there are many steps to go up and down if you think they are not to fit to do it, we recommend taking a Private tour, that will be a perfect plan to do the tour quite easily and smoothly.
4.- How about my luggage, can I take all my stuff?, or where can I store it?
As this tour is only one day, we recommend taking only small backpacks, only for taking your personal stuff. The rest of your stuff you can be stored at your accommodation in Cusco, All the Hotels have storage if you book the night for your way back, you can leave your stuff there, another option is that you can leave your stuff in our office, in the two options you don’t need to pay anything extra.
5.- How about the altitude, are going to pass by other places higher than Cusco?
Cusco city is located in 3350 masl. (10990 Ft.) the only place higher than Cusco is Pucapucara 3680 masl. Then you will descend; we always recommend having at least one day in Cusco to acclimatize; altitude sickness is very different for everyone, sometimes you don’t have any problem.
